[ laughter ] too zune? too zune? [ laughter ] yeah. ♪ >> steve: come on. >> jimmy: a little too zune, yeah too zune, yeah. that's right, donald sterling sold the team for $2 billion after he originally paid 12.5 million. it's good news for the nba and great news if you're a racist. [ laughter ] i can make $2 billion. how much money did i make? i want to say congrats to the new york rangers who beat the montreal canadiens. ♪ [ cheers and applause ] to advance to the stanley cup finals. you watched it, right?
we were texting during the game. we were texting each other, questlove and i cause we were watching the game. the montreal canadiens actually, they bet me, they provoked me. [ light laughter ] they poked the bear. >> steve: yeah. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: on twitter i'm just hanging out and they get me on twitter and they said, "hey fallon." they didn't even use my first name. [ light laughter ] "hey fallon, if the canadiens win i want you to win a a canadiens jersey during one of your monologues." and think of that. "and if the rangers win we'll have -- we'll change the twitter avatar photo on our twitter account." [ laughter ] i go, "i didn't even know you guys have a twitter account. [ laughter ] i'm not doing this bet at all." so then they say, "all right, all right how about we have our mascot youppi --" [ laughter ] again, i didn't even know they had a mascot. youppi. he'd come bring the roots poutine or something.
it's just like -- in canada, you know it's like french fries, gravy and like cheese curd or something. again, i'm -- i don't want to do that either. so the roots have a job to do. i don't wanna sit there and watch them eat food during the show. so i go, "here's the deal. when the rangers win, not if --" [ cheers ] "i change the avatar to a photo of my choice. and also i want youppi to walk around the streets of montreal in a rangers jersey." [ cheers and applause ] and that said all right. it's a deal. we'll do this. so i got to say, these guys are good sports. they made good on this bet with me. and they sent youppi out to take pictures of himself. [ light laughter ] it's really depressing. [ laughter ] but let's show you how beautiful the city is. montreal's a great place. but here's -- take a look. here's youppi in front of olympic stadium. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ]
here he is -- look at him. [ laughter ] he's riding a carousel there, very sad. and here is youppi on the streets of old montreal. and so anyways, i asked him to tweet 10 photos. they did all ten and but i said and they were trying to egg me on. and they said, "what is your jersey size, fallon?" and so i said -- and i remembered this thing because i went to this bar about six years ago called chez serge. and i was there with my friends, it was a bachelor party, just two friends. and we were at this bar. [ laughter ] i don't know how to threw the bachelor party. [ laughter ] don't ask me. it's not fun. yeah. bad night fishing. it was really -- it was weird. so we went and me and my friend we're hangning out and the guy who was gonna get married wasn't at the table, i go, i go, "what happened to dennis?" and they go, "i don't know maybe he went home. maybe he is's wasted. i don't know." i got, "that's weird. maybe he went back to the hotel." all right, whatever. so we're just hanging out drinking and i looked at the closed circuit tv in the bar. and my friend is a riding a the
mechanical bull. [ laughter ] where is there a mechanical bull here? where is that bull? i got to find my friend. that's my friend. he's just on this bull. so i said, "when you do this, i want youppi in a ranger jersey to ride the mechanical bull.

[ cheers ] >> so that's what youppi looks like without the rangers jersey. [ laughter ] i didn't know what -- couldn't see it. can we see that photo again? >> there he is, yeah. even godzilla was like, "what the hell is that thing coming out of water?" [ laughter ] that's when they said, "okay mr. ford, time to pee in a a cup." and he said, "uhm, can you give me like another half hour and some coffee? i'm getting out of this pool anyway. the water's too warm. [ laughter ] especially in that area." >> steve: that's why they call him youppi.

[ cheers and applause ] and the concert -- but then you -- david brent, you go on tour and you're playing these giant things on tour. digging it. like, it sold out in like, six seconds. >> yeah. it was crazy. which is funny because david brent can't really be that successful in selling out like bach and the rolling stones. co -- >> jimmy: yeah, the whole idea is that things don't work out for him. >> i know! well, i brought it back for a a comic release sketch where he did a song called "equality street" and it was because my favorite episode of "the office", i think a lot of people's favorite, was episode four when i got the guitar out. >> jimmy: right. >> i did a few songs. so, i've written a few. we've got about 15 songs now with david brent still trying to be a pop star at like, 50. and so, i'm doing it -- [ laughter ] and it's, it's, it's so tragic because i'm probably going to do a special, a movie or something where it's him on the road. and he thinks it's like, scorsese doing the rolling stones but of course
it's really a "where are they now?" [ laughter ] so -- >> jimmy: that's fantastic. >> it's like, they keep talking about -- what he's been doing since and it's just really tragic. it's probably more tragic than the original office. >> jimmy: it's just sad. [ laughter ] >> yeah, he's at rest now and he goes on tour and nothing happened. >> jimmy: oh, i love it. >> and he's paying for it. and he's taking his holiday leave just to get enough -- it's tragic. >> jimmy: when i was thinking about this because when i watch "derek", it's very funny, but also it has a lot of heart to it. >> yeah. >> jimmy: it's really like -- >> it's slightly more sincere than "the office" and "extras" because i think the big difference is we were laughing at the characters in "the office" and "extras." we were laughing at the difference between how they saw themselves and how the audience saw them. whereas, with "derek", we're sort of on their side more. it's the rest of the world we're laughing at. i suppose their prejudices and stuff. so -- >> jimmy: you have a close kind of connection with this character. >> yeah. yeah, because all my family, all the women in my family, were -- the men not so much. they were sort of care as they worked in other people's homes and outside -- my sister, my mum, my sister-in-law, all their kids now. >> jimmy: so this kind of a
a real story, and you're writing all this. >> yeah, yeah! i've got like, 35 years of anecdotes. and some are funny, some are really sad and some are tragic. >> jimmy: and you cry! >> yeah, i do. yeah. yeah. >> jimmy: is it hard for you to cry? >> well, no, it's not, but -- [ laughter ] i just think about doing this show again. [ laughter and applause ] >> jimmy: i still got it! still got it, man! >> i tell you, there's nothing more tragic than that. no, this is a great show. >> jimmy: thank you very much. >> it's a lovely show. you've got little muddles and everything. [ laughter ] you've got a tan now. >> jimmy: thank you. i do have a tan. >> yeah! come on! whoo! [ cheers and applause ] >> next year, you'll -- liberace, won't you? >> jimmy: i do not look liberace. >> no, but when i cry, there's always been a pay -- in "the office" and "extras." and i cried when brent begged for his job back and i cried in "extras" -- saying sorry.
i cried in "the invention of lying" and i can do all that. i can cry, but i can only do it once -- because then you feel better. [ laughter ] and it's true! >> jimmy: once you get the crying -- >> i can cry and i cried for real. they're real tears. i get caught up and i really do it but then, you feel great. so, i can't do it twice. so after they make with these two cameras and they captured it all, and that's everything, every time i cried on tv or film it's the only take. >> jimmy: really? >> so i have to get it right in one take. >> jimmy: i want to see the second take though. [ laughter ] >> no, i just can't do it. >> jimmy: i know, but i want to see it! >> i start laughing. >> jimmy: i want to be like -- >> i start laughing and i go -- "mom!" [ laughter ] >> jimmy: i want to show everyone a clip. here's ricky gervais in "derek." take a look at this. >> hey, mate. >> i can't. >> why not? >> i can't ride a bike. >> what do you mean, you can't ride a bike? >> i never learned when i was little. no one taught me. >> well, i'll teach you. >> will you? >> yeah! of course i will. sit on it. feet on the pedals.
